Dental Crown and Bridge Specialists in Easton, PA

Are you embarrassed while chewing or smiling in public due to decayed, missing, or damaged teeth? Dr. Lisa Muff, a trusted restorative dentist in Easton, PA, can help restore your beautiful smile. Our experienced team helps you attain optimal dental oral health and restore your confident smile. We offer top-notch dental bridges and crowns, including complete bridges and single crowns.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped prosthetic caps we install on your decayed, weak, or broken teeth. They offer an artificial encasing that fits over the deformed tooth to restore the natural appeal and functionality. Our dental technicians use high-quality porcelain, resin, or metal crowns to offer lasting restorative services.

We make the installation process fast, painless, and accurate. Using explorers and probes, we evaluate and identify damaged/decayed areas before shaping the tooth with a high-speed handpiece to create space for the crown. After fitting the crown, we bond it to the tooth with a permanent dental bonding agent.

Types of Crowns

At our restorative dentistry office, we have experience installing most crown types. Our team has served many satisfied clients with best-value porcelain, all-metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, composite resin, and zirconia crowns. Each type of crown offers slightly different solutions, and Dr. Lisa will determine the best fit for your needs at your appointment.

In general, we recommend porcelain crowns for metal-allergic patients with misshapen front teeth. Do you want an artificial tooth with a natural-tooth-like appeal and lasting durability to restore your natural chewing abilities? The all-metal crowns suit your molars best. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are versatile solutions for your back and front teeth, offering a natural appearance and improved smile. Zirconia crowns are highly aesthetic and offer a translucent quality, resembling natural tooth enamel. Customers looking for same-day crowns will appreciate the cost-effectiveness of composite resin crowns.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are custom-made appliances that fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are anchored in place by attaching to neighboring teeth or dental implants, providing a natural-looking and functional solution for restoring your smile. Dental bridges are an incredible alternative to crowns, designed to restore your beautiful smile and natural chewing abilities. We anchor them to nearby dental implants and teeth to bridge the gap between the adjacent teeth and restore your speaking and chewing function. Call us or visit our Easton, PA, location to leverage our expertise in dental bridge installation to maintain your facial structure and aesthetics and prevent your teeth from shifting.

How to Care for Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges, like natural human teeth, perform and last based on the level of care and maintenance. We usually advise our clients to observe the following care tips to prolong the life of bridges and crowns.

  • Brush your teeth twice a day using floss and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Avoid chewing on hard foods or objects that can potentially damage your dental crowns or bridges. Avoid biting on ice or hard candies.
  • Wear mouthguards to protect your teeth when engaging in contact activities and sports.
  • Be mindful of any changes in your dental crowns or bridges, such as sensitivity, pain, loosening, or damage, and promptly contact your dentist if you experience any concerns.
  • Visit your dentist at least once every six months for regular check-ups and dental cleanings.
